This is one of those rare times when you can almost judge a record by its' cover. From the title, Cosmic Connection, and the band's psychedelic logo, to the moody front cover depicting Stoney Curtis in the cosmos, acid blues fans will know to expect something great. Stoney Curtis is no stranger to psychedelic imagery. One of his albums was titled Acid Blues Experience, and the Los Angeles resident/Chicago native has an equally psychedelic-sounding title in Cosmic Conn3ction, which also has psychedelic art work and some psychedelic musical influences to go with that psychedelic-sounding title. But Cosmic Conn3ction isn't psychedelic in a poppy way.

Effortless Cool is an album by Homespun, a collaborative project between Sam Brown and Dave Rotheray. "Sweetness," "Italy," and "Minute" are among the tracks. This project was inaugurated in 2002 when David Rotheray found himself with some down time during a lull in Beautiful South activities. He recorded a series of demos with musical friends at his home studio and, after realising that the project demanded more serious consideration, called on vocalist Sam Brown to help him re-record the material. The self-titled debut album by the newly minted Homespun was one of 2003’s most charming releases, drawing on pop, country and folk and with Brown’s superb vocals providing the icing on the cake. The equally accomplished Effortless Cool followed in 2005.

How many Jamaican-born bluesmen recorded with John Lee Hooker and toured with Otis Redding? It's a safe bet there was only one: Eddie Kirkland, who engaged in some astonishing on-stage acrobatics over the decades (like standing on his head while playing guitar on TV's Don Kirshner's Rock Concert). But you would never find any ersatz reggae grooves cluttering Kirkland's work. He was brought up around Dothan, Alabama before heading north to Detroit in 1943. There he hooked up with Hooker five years later, recording with him for several labels as well as under his own name for RPM in 1952, King in 1953, and Fortune in 1959. Tru-Sound Records, a Prestige subsidiary, invited Kirkland to Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey in 1961-1962 to wax his first album, It's the Blues Man! The polished R&B band of saxophonist King Curtis intersected with Kirkland's intense vocals, raucous guitar, and harmonica throughout the exciting set.

As a setting for writer Marcelo Cohen's meta-texts, the music on Factor Burzaco's II is filled with unease, derived in part from the dark and dissonant electro-acoustic drones cropping up here and there, but also from the music's volatility, how it erupts in sudden bursts of noise and rhythm, even flirting with punky rock without ever quite breaking into a sweat. This Argentinian project is the brainchild of composer/orchestrator/producer Abel Gilbert, who plays no musical instrument here but employs 16 musicians to realize his musical vision, which occasionally (particularly late in the program on a track like "Straviko") seems like a 21st century update of Henry Cow circa Unrest. That touchstone of '70s art rock was essentially an instrumental endeavor, however, and here the dominant voice is in fact a voice – that of vocalist Carolina Restuccia, who provides much of the album's appeal and even accessibility.

Conceived in late 2013 and inspired by the likes of John Zorn and Frank Zappa, Sydney-based 7-piece Facemeat is abrasive, uncompromising, and unsettling. Rooted somewhere near the transgressive art tradition, its upcoming album “Questions For Men” deals with the more abject elements of modern masculinity, such as violence, jealousy, anxiety and rage. Facemeat weaves tales of the most abject facets of love and lust, angst and ennui over restless rhythms and through sickly harmonies. The music engages and unsettles, whilst its vocal lurches between soft, calming crooning and feverish, manic ranting. A typical Facemeat experience begins with a feeling of unease, is then yanked down to a dank, desperate place before being launched home towards triumph and elation.

Andy Gibb (Greatest Hits Collection) replaces the 1980 compilation Andy Gibb's Greatest Hits. The disc features all of the previous collection's songs – the hits "After Dark," "Desire," "An Everlasting Love," "I Just Want to Be Your Everything," "(Love Is) Thicker Than Water," "(Our Love) Don't Throw It All Away" and "Shadow Dancing," plus "Me (Without You)" and "Time Is Time," which were only on Greatest Hits – and it also adds "Man on Fire" and "Flowing Rivers." The result is an excellent summation of Gibb's brief career, and for most fans, it will be the only Gibb album they'll need.

True Blue is the album where Madonna truly became Madonna the Superstar – the endlessly ambitious, fearlessly provocative entertainer who knew how to outrage, spark debates, get good reviews – and make good music while she's at it. To complain that True Blue is calculated is to not get Madonna – that's a large part of what she does, and she is exceptional at it, but she also makes fine music. What's brilliant about True Blue is that she does both here, using the music to hook in critics just as she's baiting a mass audience with such masterstrokes as "Papa Don't Preach," where she defiantly states she's keeping her baby. Her real trick here, however, is transcending her status as a dance-pop diva by consciously recalling classic girl group pop…

Love was an American rock group of the late 1960s and early 1970s. They were led by singer, songwriter and guitarist Arthur Lee and the group's second songwriter, guitarist Bryan MacLean. One of the first racially diverse American pop bands, their music reflected different influences, combining elements of rock and roll, garage rock, folk and psychedelia. While finding only modest success on the music charts, Love would come to be praised by critics as one of the finest and most important American rock groups of all time. Their third album, Forever Changes (1967), is generally regarded as their masterpiece, included in the Library of Congress' National Recording Registry in 2011. Double-CD box contains most of their classic first three albums (including the entirety of Forever Changes), all three non-LP tracks from their 1966-1968 prime, and highlights of the post-Bryan MacLean albums from the late '60s and early '70s.

Band on the Run is the third studio album by Paul McCartney and Wings, released in December 1973. It marked the fifth album by Paul McCartney since his departure from the Beatles in April 1970. Although sales were modest initially, its commercial performance was aided by two hit singles – "Jet" and "Band on the Run" – such that it became the top-selling studio album of 1974 in the United Kingdom and Australia, in addition to revitalising McCartney's critical standing. It remains McCartney's most successful album and the most celebrated of his post-Beatles works. In 2000, Q magazine placed it at number 75 in its list of the "100 Greatest British Albums Ever". In 2012, Band on the Run was voted 418th on Rolling Stone's revised list of "The 500 Greatest Albums of All Time". A contemporary review by Jon Landau in Rolling Stone described the album as "with the possible exception of John Lennon's Plastic Ono Band, the finest record yet released by any of the four musicians who were once called the Beatles".

The House Jumpers bring you authentic up-tempo blues from America’s Heartland. The band’s great vocal melodies, big guitars, and jumpabilly grooves are designed for dancing. This album is true American music, combining jump blues and rockabilly flavors, by a powerful new band from USA. This music was born in American cities such as Memphis, New Orleans, New York, Dallas, Los Angeles, San Diego, and Kansas City. Early versions of jump blues featured horns, but well-known guitarists, such as T-Bone Walker, pioneered the addition of electric guitar to swing and jump music after WWII. Rockabilly music emerged during the same time through the marriage of rural country music to blues and swing rhythm.
